How to quiet a teething baby.

Lately I have been dealing with a teething baby. To translate, a teething baby is like dealing with a constant scratch on a chalkboard.

It sounds like waaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh 23.5 hours of the day. That is not even the slightest exaggeration whatsoever. Sometimes I wonder if aliens took my awesome sweet smiley baby and left me with some other woman’s problems.

Sigh. Only 17 years and 4 months to go, right?

And few things can soothe a teething baby:

  • Pacifiers
  • Advil
  • A big sister
  • Time
  • Anything you leave on the ground including shoes, keys, and grass

and I recently discovered:

Popsicles

I know you are shaking your head right now.

“You gave your 8 month old a Popsicle??”

Not exactly. I gave my 8 month old, my daughter, and every neighborhood kid on the block a Yosicle (psst..and I didn’t even ask their parents first).

Would you begrudge this crowd a little spring break fun?

NOt me. I am the cool mom on the block. *cough*

And because it kept Phoenyx quiet for like 10 minutes.

Btw, it was absolutely hysterical to see him hold the Yosicle with his hands. He was registering how cold it was but he wanted to eat it so badly that he was toughing it out.

The face of a summer warrior:

Btw, this summer I am one of several awesomesauce bloggers to be an ambassador for Popsicle and introduce this new line of tasty treats to all of y’all. Yousicle is a Popsicle “pop” and yogurt combined “yo” treat that makes up the Yosicle. There are four new boxes of flavors on the market that include this brand. I am going to give you a chance to win a six month supply for your kids as well, so be on the look out for that. In the mean time visit these URLs to learn more:

 

Oh, and a wet wash cloth also works for quieting down a teething baby…and cleaning him up after some outdoor fun. I do think we lost that onesie to some serious stains though.

It was a small price for some peace.

 

Do you ever use cold treats as a teething soother?

Oh, and feel free to pass on your other tips if you have some miracle worker idea….he still has the top ones to break through!!! I need all the help I can get.

  1. I swear by these things; http://www.overstock.com/Baby/Munchkin-Assorted-Color-Fresh-Food-Feeder-Pack-of-2/5947599/product.html?cid=202290&kid=9553000357392&track=pspla&adtype=pla&kw={keyword}

    You stuff it with whatever food you want baby to gnaw on, freeze it, and then hand over to baby. They come in 2 packs, so when one starts to thaw to much you can switch them out! :)

    Lately I’ve been filling ours with baked sweet potato & steamed carrots, then freezing. Vinnie gets a decent little meal & the chewing on the mesh really helps his gums. :)

    And no sugar or added anything that I don’t want him to have or he can’t have (thanks to food allergies).

  2. My boys used to love frozen pretzels (until they got mushy, then I’d take them away) – but it’s like you say, as long as it’s cold, they are happy.
    I adore these photos, I really think it is funny that P is getting teeth while C is losing them. =)

  3. I have no advice on teething, it has been so long since my children were babies I have forgotten, but just wanted to say how cute that picture is with all the kids.

  4. My little girl is 7 months old & awet wash cloth from freezer helps for some quite time….lol

    They make awesome little “feed bags” with handles now.

    We used them with our daughter so she wouldn’t choke on food that you’re totally not supposed to feed kids of her age. Ha ha.

    Cold melon, a chunk of an ice pop, ice cubes, etc. and she was set for 30 minutes! Totally doesn’t prevent the mess though.

  6. Haha I love it!

  7. Lou Lange says:

    As long as it was cold, my two boys were like GIMME…LOL. Quieted them right down.

  8. AWESOME!

    Jude’s top two are trying to come in and he is MISERABLE. I need to try the cold/frozen washcloth thing … I had forgotten about that.

    Sigh … I hate teething.
